“very good, yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Our family of four dined at the La Carreta on Eastman Drive. There are 2 restaurants with the same name I believe. It is located across from a strip mall. It is nothing fancy and very plain inside. The service was very good and efficient. We enjoyed cold drinks and the fresh nachos and salsa while we ordered and waited for our food. We did not have to wait long and we enjoyed everything including shrimp tacos, chimichangas, chicken quesadilla, soft and hard tacos. The prices were excellent and the portions generous. Yum!

“Love, love love La Carreta.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Love their salsa on the days that it's especially hot and always have to have a Speedy Gonzales. The queso dip is great and on special occasions the fried ice cream is so yummy. Prices are very reasonable and there are usually coupons floating around to use.

“Very frustrating evening”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Communication with our waiter was extremely difficult. It took far too long to order, and then when the food arrived..... You guessed it. It was wrong. The waiter wanted to argue, but the manager was very helpful. The food was good, although considering the level of difficulty we experienced with the service it's tough to give a fair appraisal.

“Tried and True”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Most of us have favorite dishes at La Carreta. For those who are thikning of trying it let me please recommend: Taco Salad, chili rellano, tamale. Now let me give you a really good suggestion. Try the Mexican Guacamole. Not the dip...look below that....mexican guacamole. Fresh-tastic!!!!! This is a regular place for most people in the Kingsport area. It's tried and true and more often than not, it's just really good!

“Typical Mexican”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant has typical Mexican food served very quickly as if it was already prepared and then microwaved to heat up. Get the Mexican guacamole instead of the American version for more taste. If you are looking for a real taste of Mexican food, this will dissappoint.
